Pictures of Lebanese Food

Feasting in Lebanon

When in Lebanon, eat as one of the Lebanese! That's the philosophy YumSugar member FinnLover had in mind when she headed to the Middle East on a recent backpacking trip.
My husband and I spent the month of July backpacking in the Middle East.  One of the four countries we visited during our trip was Lebanon.  I was really looking forward to discovering the rich food culture there and I was not disappointed.  Every single meal we had in Beirut was amazing. Fresh vegetables, grilled meats, nuts, fresh salty cheeses, olive oil, flat breads... Every meal was like a delicious, healthy feast. Eating Lebanese food in Lebanon was an incredible experience.

Taste a bit of everything she ate when you keep on reading.

Flat bread stuffed with meat.

Fattoush - my new favourite salad.

Another fattoush - I had to have one with every meal.

Kebab (koftas) - often served with grilled tomatoes, onions, parsley & flat bread.

Grilled Halloumi cheese, green pepper & tomato kebab.

Warm bread.

Shawarma - the beef ones came with parsley, onions, pickled turnip and yogurt.

Shawarma - the chicken ones came with pickled peppers and yogurt.

Baba Ghanoush - eggplant dip, served Syrian style.

Deep-fried pastries stuffed with cheese or meat.
